The Q&A Archives: What is Pandora Green?

Question: I wanted to know what is a pandora green? I just bought one and am not sure how it will grow,what hight and whatever else I should need to know about this plant.

Answer: Pandorea Sometimes called a bower vine, Pandorea jasminoides (a.k.a. Bignonia j.), is a pretty vine with delicate foliage that looks like jasmine, hence its name. It develops woody stems that twine and can be trained upon some form of support. Pandorea flowers are about 2 inches across and funnel-shaped. They are a pale pink with a deep intense dark-pink throat. Pandorea is never covered with blooms, but will flower all through the growing season. A variety with handsome variegated foliage is frequently available.

There are some truly incredible blooming vines that can add their unique beauty to your homes and patios. Some of them are formal and well-behaved and others are adventurous and uninhibited. Blooming vines can fill a very specialized niche in indoor gardening, combining their trailing, rambling and climbing forms with wonderful flowers.
Blooming vines have their own needs, but they all share some basic requirements. To bloom, they will need lots of bright light including several hours of direct sun each day. They all like to be kept consistently moist while they are actively growing and blooming but prefer to dry out slightly between waterings in late fall and winter. Fertilize them every other week during the growing season with a water-soluble or liquid fertilizer and cut back to once a month during the winter. They are all tropical in nature and need to be indoors as soon as the weather gets down into the low 50?s.
